Thanks due asking me to reply. You may be having carpal Tunnel syndrome. It would be ideal to have an NCS study done of the median nerve of that particular limb. You may have to visit an ortho surgeon or a neurologist who can order the test for you. I cannot prescribe meds as Practo prohibits me from doing so.
